The Grote kerk or Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk (Church of Our Lady) is the most important monument of Breda. The church is built in the gothic style Brabantse gothiek. The tower of the church is 97 meter tall. The plan is in the shape of a Latin Cross, as is usual with gothic cathedrals.
Interesting: Breda was liberated following a successful outflanking manoeuvre planned and performed by forces of 1st Polish Armoured Division of Gen. Maczek on October 29, 1944. Each year during Liberation Day festivities, Breda is visited by a large Polish contingent and the city of Breda reserves a special portion of the festivities for the fallen Polish soldiers. A museum and a monument honoring General Stanisław Maczek and the Polish 1st Armoured Division stands at the city center. General Maczek and soldiers of his division are buried in a nearby Polish military cemetery.
The Lubart Castle in Łuck was built in the mid-14th century as the fortified seat of Gediminas' son Liubartas.
The current castle, towering over the Styr River, was built mostly in the 1340s, although some parts of the earlier walls were used. It repelled sieges by numerous potentates, including Casimir the Great (1349), Jogaila (1431), and Sigismund Kestutaitis(1436). It was there that the Łuck Conference of 1429 took place, attended by Emperior Sigismund, Vasyl II, Jogaila, Vytautas The Great, and the voivode of Wallachia.
